Broadcasters Mourn Loss of Bev Brown

Texas broadcasters are mourning the loss of Pioneer Broadcaster Bev Brown.

Brown passed away on April 4 at the age of 92.

In 1955, he began his 33-year career in Radio at KGAS Carthage; he became managing partner in 1957.

He purchased the station in 1965 and operated it until retiring in 1988. At that time, he had served as the voice of Carthage Football for more than 30 years.

He served as TAB Chairman in 1982 and his fellow broadcasters named him Pioneer of the Year in 1986.

If desired, memorials may be made to the Carthage Education Foundation, #1 Bulldog Drive, Carthage, Texas 75633 or the First United Methodist Church, 201 South Shelby, Carthage, Texas 75633.
